Mt.Fuji Latest News: Mt.Fuji Pass&Currency Exchange Machine
The climbing season for Mt.Fuji is beginning from 1st July. I am introducing two good news related to Mt.Fuji. On the same day as the start of the season, Fujikyu Railway starts to sell Mt.Fuji Pass. With the reasonable pass, you can use transportation and admit sightseeing spots like Fuji-Q Highland around the Mt.Fuji area all you want.
And to solve one of the most troubling problems for foreign tourists, a currency exchange machine has been just set in the mountain. It is getting more convenient to travel the highest mountain in Japan.
Mt.Fuji Pass is strongly recommended for those who have a plan to spend a full day or more in Mt.Fuji, Fuji Five Lakes and around. Free to ride train and bus run by Fujikyu Railway, admit amusement parks and excursion ships and get discounts at 12 stores and facilities designated.
There are 3 types by day: 1day to 3 days.

For example, you can get your money’s worth from the pass by making a round trip from Tokyo area to Mt.Fuji, admitting Fuji-Q Highland, riding an attraction of Fuji-Q Highland, moving to Lake Kawaguchiko by bus or train and boarding an excursion ship.
